I’m leaving on a jet plane–to the Galapagos

I wanted to write this MUCH earlier but work has been hectic.  My college roommate and I decided to go on a trip to the Galapagos, both to take in the sights and to visit an old friend from college.  So here is my projected list of things to bring on this trip.  Any last minute suggestions would be awesome from readers if you have anything to add 🙂

sunscreen

poncho/waterproof jacket

travel pillow

bug spray

disinfectant spray/wipes

backpack

underwater camera

first aid kit (meds, band aids, neosporin, etc.)

moisturizer

lip balm

hat (maybe) & sunglasses

flashlight

scarf

water shoes

sweater/fleece

quick drying pants

snorkel & goggles

swimsuit

wetsuit

flip flops

sneakers

ID

passport

(regular) camera

 

The reason that I’ll be bringing so many cool weather items is because apparently the Galapagos gets a little chilly in August due to changes in the currents around this time of year.  Hopefully, this list helps others plan their trip and/or inspires people to comment with helpful feedback!
